I truly lucked out and happened to check on the eagles’ nest during a feeding moment. There’s a sequence that I captured that I’ve decided to put in a gallery (or slideshow? click on the first image to get the sequence). What it highlights is that the dominant eaglet -to the right of the adult, the first one to start flapping its wings, gets fed first with no obvious interference from the less pushy one. Then… it’s interesting that the dominant one looks on intently, even looking like he’s giving the adult and the sibling the ‘stink eye’ while the other is fed.
This is one time when I’m posting way more shots than I normally do because it was impossible to trim the number down any more than I have:
What an exciting event to catch! I was beyond thrilled. It’s a wonder I kept the camera steady enough for these shots!
